Fruit is an amazing natural colourful juicy food for a healthy balanced diet and a happy morning! They are full of flavour, give off an appealing aroma and melt in your mouth. Why then, do some of us still prefer processed food for snacking or sugary puddings to these rewarding fresh products? Well, you might have not been completely persuaded.
We will give you some evidence of the benefits by providing you with a list of at least 5 benefits of starting your morning with a bowl of juicy fruits or a freshly made smoothie.
- Put yourself in a good mood! Your day starts with breakfast and your entire day depends on your morning mood: if you start with negative thoughts from when you wake up, then you will destroy your day. Instead, make a better start with a healthy energising smoothie to boost your mood and wake up your smile.
- Re-hydrate after you sleep! Most fruits contain 60-95% of water. A fruit bowl will help your dehydrated body get enough water alongside vitamins and minerals from the morning. Simply peel and chunk watermelon, orange, kiwi, mango and sprinkle with lemon juice and your breakfast is ready.
- Healthy sugar! Have you noticed that when you are using your brain, carrying out physical activity or feel moody, your body immediately requires sugar? A fruit and berry salad is the best way to prevent your body from unhealthy sugary snacking. If your body consumes enough glucose at the beginning of a day, you won’t be so desperate to snack later on.
- Fibre to clean your body! Fruits are high in fibre and easy to digest. Your body won’t need to spend a great deal of energy to break down a smoothie or bowl of fruits, therefore you will feel much more uplifted, optimistic and smiley.
- A source of vitamins and health! Fruit nourishes your body with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They help you to stay healthy by strengthening your immune system, protecting you from various diseases and improving your skin. Kiwi, mango, papaya, pineapple, grapefruit and apricots are amazingly rich in antioxidant vitamins such as vitamin A, C and E.
Have we provided enough evidence? Then it’s time to dash to the closest local market and get enough supply of fruits to create, experiment and enjoy!
